It is the small things to be THANKFUL for.....

Well, we are almost 3 months into our homeschooling year and I am THANKFUL that it is Thanksgiving week! That means a breather for me! I love homeschooling my 7th grader and my 8th grader, don't get me wrong. But, this time of year with EVERYTHING going on.... plus homeschooling, it can get a little crazy. Having a week of not having to deal with school, means 2 happy kids and a Mom that can concentrate on the other 100's of things she has to do before we leave for Thanksgiving weekend at my parents.
And it gives me a chance during our 6 hour drive to reflect on our schedule and curriculum and adjust anything that is or isn't working for us. Any printable resources that make my life easier are a godsend! I am constantly scouring the internet for any free printable lists or printable resources for 6th grade, 7th grade or 8th grade. It gives us a break from our online learning and gives the boys a chance to use a pencil!LOL I know that while the next week of family, friends, turkey, snow, driving and chaos will be BUSY, but I also know that my little break from homeschooling will allow me to come back refreshed and ready to attack our next few months until Spring Break! Only 4 months and counting!LOL
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
